Last Election Story

Before we leave behind for good all of the presidential election year stuff, we need to send this quick story into the Internet Pipes, for the sake of posterity.

An elderly acquaintance of a good friend of ours received all those emails last year predicting Barack Obama would seize everyone's handguns and take away their bibles.

"Don't be ridiculous," our friend told her. "That's nonsense."

"No, it's true," the acquaintance insisted, quite sincerely. "He's a Muslim, you know."

When the results were known Election Night here along the Gulf Coast, about 11 pm, everyone toasted the newly elected president. Then, speaking of her acquaintance, our friend said, "Now, let's call, wake her up, and tell her we're coming for her bible."

And force her to 'gay marry,' of course.
